Thomas Greiss Is Giving Te Wings A Chance To Win

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Thomas Greiss is playing his best hockey of the season, just in time for the Detroit Red Wings.

The trade deadline is Monday, and the Wings have multiple players, including goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who should draw interest. Bernier has been the team's MVP, while Greiss struggled through February and March, especially.

But Greiss has strung together his best stretch, posting a .940 save percentage and 1.86 goals-against average his last five games.

“He’s been calm, kept everything right in front of him, and swallowed up a lot,” Dylan Larkin said. “When he’s out there he has a calming effect, just like Jonathan Bernier does. He makes key saves. He keeps us in the game. He’s done a great job.

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Greiss has his game in order after being pulled in the first period of that blowout loss at Nashville. He has been solid in five appearances since, including the past four starts.

He gave the Red Wings a chance to win by making 29 saves in regulation and overtime, before Ryan Johansen and Roman Josi scored on Nashville’s first two attempts in the shootout.

“I think over this stretch since Florida (on March 30), he’s been solid, and we’ve played solid defensively in front of him,” Blashill said. “Those two things usually go hand in hand.”

Greiss has a 1.86 goals-against average and .940 save percentage over his past five appearances, after struggling most of the season.

“He’s been through lots in his pro career, he knows how to handle it,” Blashill said. “That’s part of the advantage of having a guy like that. Obviously, everybody’s confidence is shaken at times but he’s able to stay with it and just work and he’s done that, and he’s put himself in a better spot.”

Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
